Let's hear it!


It's a bit quiet here in Fledgeland. I'm working on a new dress and I can't just get it right! I've challenged myself with this one and, well, it's a challenge.

But, I did want to take a minute to tell you that there is a new blog on the block. Crafts For Boys.

Cara has a beautiful blog--handwritten, no less--about her vie en rose en la belle France. One day, it seems, being the crafty sort she is, she was given a certain book about sewing for kids, which seemed to offer a bit less than expected on the whole boy side of the kid's clothing spectrum. I can't imagine which book she means.

At any rate, being a mother to a wonderful member of that other gender, this book, if not to sew clothes, might have just inspired her to dedicate a blog to crafts with a more snips/snails/puppy dog tails vibe. But she still has this book! But she'll give it away. Leave a comment and maybe she'll send it your way! And who doesn't want mail from France? Getting mail from France is awesome.

Well, at any rate, go have a lookie-see at Cara's blogs. And girls like robots and spaceships, too, so, yeah, there.

And FYI: Around the end of March, Sabine went a bit boy-crazy on her blog. And so did about another 140 moms. So check that out for boy inspiration.

Let's hear it for the boys!

Love to you all!

ah, thanks for the plug :) And don't think I'm giving away my copy of your book! No way, it's too awesome, it's a brand new copy... I'm spreading the love ;-)
